John Oliver slams Republicans with hilarious take-down of Mitch McConnell
The host of HBO's "Last Week Tonight with John Oliver" blasted Republicans and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) on Sunday evening.
The criticism of the GOP leader came during Oliver's recap of the passage of Joe Biden's stimulus package, which he described as the "biggest" news of the week.
Oliver played clips of House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL), Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA), and McConnell attacking the package.
"I think this is actually one of the worst pieces of legislation I've seen passed here in the time I've been in the Senate," McConnell said.
"What?" Oliver asked.
"I know that you've been in the Senate for 600 years, but giving struggling Americans barely-enough rent money after a year of a f*cking pandemic is one of the worst pieces of legislation that you have ever seen?" Oliver asked.
"Are you absolutely sure about that Mitch?" he asked, be rattling off some of the legislation that has passed since McConnell first started serving in 1985.
